2013 Dodge Durango Citadel 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


We had a 2011 Traverse LTZ that we were very happy with.
Liked the dependability and the room.
We were just looking for something nicer inside and with a little better ride and quieter.
We looked at Acura MDX (too small even the new one); New Traverse and Buick (mild refresh not too exciting); Infiniti QX60 (nice, a little slower and would have been $10k more than our fully loaded Durango Citadel.

From the first moment I drove the new 2014 Durango I was impressed by the handling; how solid and quiet it was; the ease of use of the Uconnect control system, and the performance.

We got a fully loaded Durango Citadel with with 5.7 L Hemi V8.

Best Features

Interior quality is excellent - on par with Acura; Infiniti; MB and BMW. Uconnect works great: The ventilated seats are great for Texas weather; The sound and DVD entertainment system is great; V8 is fun to have - wife just reported 24.8 mpg on a 250 mile road trip (we've only had the Durango for 2 weeks). Mixed in town and commuting mileage is 17-18 mpg. We also like the adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring. I especially like how it rides, handles and how quiet it is inside. The sound system makes it sound like you are at the movie theater when watching a DVD.

Worst Features

Very few: 1) adjustable opening height of the auto rear hatch (this is the one feature we would really like that other have) 2) sliding second row seats - although leg room is still pretty good. 3) if it had as much interior room as the Chevy Traverse. That is about it. So far this vehicle is near perfect.
